This last weekend, Capone’s Speakeasy opened in Alameda in true 1920s posh mode, welcoming guests dressed to the occasion.
Cocktails aptly named after gangsters and mob activities were served—V-Day Massacre, The Dillinger, Bonnie & Clyde, and so on—and a lively, rowdy time was had by all.
No one, presumably, as much as the owner Mark Strachan, who by the end of the night was arrested for public drunkenness, battery (on a police officer), resisting arrest and violating the terms of his probation.
Strachan allegedly ran across the trafficked street and engaged with officers in what sounds like a brawl before being taken into custody. (View the report here.)
We’d be surprised, but well, would you expect any less from a bar named Capone’s Speakeasy?
